Ukrainian shirt for Independence Day
« Reply #500 on: August 24, 2018, 09:28:35 PM »
Today, Ochka wore a traditional Ukrainian shirt to University in honor of Independence Day.

She was pleased that many people commented, and even more pleased that the professors from Poland, Czech and Romania knew what she was celebrating.

She was telling me that Ukrainian traditional clothing was more similar to those countries plus Belarus, than it was to Russian traditional clothing.

I took her out to dinner, and then to a small musical which was horrendous.  We left at intermission.

Wife and I watched a video of the celebration in Maidan Square. Trump sent Sec of State John Bolton to be on stage with President Poroshenko and American soldiers marched down Khreshchatyk Street.

Obtaining a nice A$$
« Reply #502 on: September 02, 2018, 11:02:54 AM »
Just this morning after we finished Pilates, I remarked to wife (as I often do) . . . nice A$$.

Then I added; where did you get that, at WalMart or Neiman Marcus?

She replied:  "Can only be ordered on Internet from another country.  Too expensive in USA."

She's right. Imported ass is the best.

Just read my last post. Had a brain fart with John Bolton's job title.

Hurricane sounds worse in Ukraine
« Reply #504 on: September 12, 2018, 05:22:22 PM »
Wife's mother called on Skype in a panic.  Because of the coming hurricane, she must come back home to safety in Ukraine until the threat passes.

Telling her that the storm will be 4 hours away at closest point did no good.

Always forest fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, flash floods, hurricanes, etc., in USA.

FSUW refuse to answer question asked
« Reply #505 on: November 06, 2018, 11:23:10 AM »
You married men, or men in long term relationship with FSUW.

Have you noticed that your gal often doesn't answer the question you asked; but rather answers another somewhat related (or possibly even unrelated) question?

I don't think they are being deliberately antagonistic, but just something in their character causes it.

It is getting a little tiresome for me.

The fact I actually had to try to recall any instances, I cannot honestly say I share the same sentiment, ML. There were times some misunderstanding occurred but those have more to do in the manner I phrased the question which she misunderstood.

Got to agree with GQB. My wife and I talk all the time. When I'm at the office I can count on her calling on the phone or texting me several times a day about something and I do the same. If I call about what's for dinner or what I need to pick up from the store on my way home I get a detailed answer.

My wife loves lists and will give me a detailed list for stuff to pick up at the store. How many loaves of bread, white or whole wheat, brand, etc.

If we're talking about the kids via text sometimes she will bring about totally unrelated topics such as the her car needs an oil change but that's just her being detailed and the fact that I handle all car related issues even if it's her car.

I have had business dealings with Russians
being “evasive” when confronted by questioning is a cultural norm, it means they’re being “cautious”

my wife knows what pleases me
and what irritates me

she understands it is very much in her self interest to be pleasing
and not irritating
it is one of the many things I have have taught her

once you teach a UW obedience
then the rest becomes quite easy...
just like raising children, you have to have discipline with your wife as well

if you ever have to yank the chain on a Ukrainian woman
she will just roll over and expose her unprotected underbelly to you in a show of submission
unlike an American woman, who would never be submissive under any circumstance
it's another thing I really like about my wife
a simple, sweet natured woman
who ALWAYS gets what SHE wants
because I ALWAYS get what I want

more quid = more quo

My wife doesn't but my sister does. My sister drives me nuts. I've known a few FSU women that answer a question with a question though.

With my wife, no.
Completely normal question/answer scenarios, I'd be more likely to not answer directly as I might have not understood the questions exact  phrasing. She often leaves out key details when asking me something, as she thinks I already know what's in her head.lol I think because we both read each other too well,but I do have to ask for details at times when answering. Not if i ask the question though.


If she changes a topic out of the blue,she actually normally states that's shes going to do so, prior to the tangent. Normally in a joking way.
So no, really dont see that at all with her.

Have seen it with others though ,many times, it seems a tad common *over there*

My relaxing retirement years
« Reply #511 on: November 14, 2018, 10:41:07 AM »
Yesterday drove by a parcel that I had sold to a small-time builder.
Noticed he was going back and forth from an excavator to a front loader in digging out the basement area.
Went up to talk with him and got the scoop that his helper had not showed.
So I offered to help him.
With some minimal instruction, I was able to operate the front loader.
Spent about 7 hours on the front loader making probably a couple hundred trips.
What a mind numbing, boring job, and I had aches and pains everywhere during evening and night.

A front end loader or a skid steer with a bucket?  A true front end loader isn't so bad, as it has softer tires and a better seat.  A skid steer will beat you up though.

You should have gotten on the excavator.  A lot smoother ride and easy to run.

Front end loader is a generic term and skid steer falls into that category. If ML used his feet to operate the bucket and hands to get the machine to travel, he was in a skid steer loader. If he used his feet to get the machine to travel and hands to operate the bucket, he was in a track or wheel loader.

What a mind numbing, boring job,


Carving out dirt is a form of artwork.


I had aches and pains everywhere during evening and night.


You can get used to it. Using your body everyday will make you tougher than nails. With experience you'd get better at working the machines. A good operator would've created a smooth surface to travel on so he wouldn't feel every bump and hole while travelling.

I don't think they are being deliberately antagonistic, but just something in their character causes it.

It is getting a little tiresome for me.

Two possible scenarios

1/ She understand your question -seems unlikely

2/ She DID understand - but didn't think it important enough to answer - bur as you raised a matter - comes back with something on HER mind ?.....

Why not mention this - with and appropriate smile and wink and answer HER question... and not bother about yours ...


THEN next time she answers you a question - YOU do her 'thang' and just hint that she shoudl know you are being ironic

IF she does it a third time and doesn't take the hint - smile at her and give her just enough time to understand that she is about to be 'punished' ...

After when she is wondering - what was all THAT about ? Explain, you just want her to be as confused as you get ?



Please note that this might back fire - but at least - if she becomes angry - rather than passionate - you can discuss if may be there's a communication / relationship problem ?

Things that 'irritate' when times are good can become MAJOR issues when things are 'bad' - you best to talk 'em trough - if you can ?

I adored my ( nearly ) former wife and 'forgave' some character flaws ( me being being so 'perfect' )  and it is only AFTER being dumped by her - and living with SC - that I appreciate how unreasonable she could be.

ML, you ave posted about shakey times in your relationship in the past and then we noted no mentions disagreements - so we were all pleased for you both.. You are very proud of her and we've seen the way you've posting adoring comments.

I hope you can work it through and laugh about, after ...

Holy Loader Batman! You missed the word 'compact' in there ML.  :P I guess that model came before AM/FM radio and cup holder features, no?

Must not be a very deep basement since the buckets looks like a half-a-yard bucket. At 200 trips means you moved 100 CY in 7 hours!!!! I can move dirt faster than that with 2 labors sharing a shovel in 7 hours!

You're fired! BillyB can employ you instead... :P

Seriously though, the newer model do have better ride. These loaders are a multi-functioning equipment doing general chores around farms and such.

I said it was 'like' the one I used.  Just found that pic in a quick search on Internet.
The one I used has already been moved out, and a crew is on the property now erecting the panels used to frame up for pouring of concrete basement walls.

And, I didn't have nearly full loads each trip.  There was a lot of rock that was being chipped out and it was hard for me to get it cleaned up and into a load, with my great inexperience.

Just yesterday and this morning I used the same man's small excavator to dig out some small and medium stumps on another of my parcels I will prepare for sale.  That was also a new and exciting experience for me, and I am sure it took me 10X as long to do it as for you and Billy.

But it is something different for me to do (compared to my normal paperwork and computer stuff) while wifey is off to university.

Yeah, I know what you mean..

Back during the infancy days of my career, I spent a lot of Saturdays behind D9s/D8s and 651s, 633s, and 637/57s..They weren't for production purposes, but rather more for acclimation of what these various equipment can do. I literally move a pile from one point to another, then over again and start over.

Today, I sit behind computers, make calls, make deals, tell people what to do, sign here/sign there, etc...lazy stuff  :P

The basements we dig are at least 2 acres big (bigger the better), could be one story on down to 5-6 stories down depending on building designs (underground parking, etc.). We use 349 excavators/966 loaders, etc...loading bottom-dumps. Walls are shored with rakers, tiebacks, struts and braces.

Site development grading is a whole different operation. That's when we move mountains or rearrange massive terrain for whatever developmental purposes is planned...

I agree with you - field work is a bunch of fun. Tough, but more fun than sitting in the office all day.

That's a skid steer loader with tracks.

And, I didn't have nearly full loads each trip.


As you're entering a pile of dirt, lift up the bucket to add weight to the tires or tracks of a loader to get better traction which would allow you to get more in the bucket.

Today, I sit behind computers, make calls, make deals, tell people what to do, sign here/sign there, etc...lazy stuff  :P


I do that too but occasionally go out with the guys. I like working outdoors more than indoors. I soil cemented the sub-grade and graded the capillary break within a half an inch tolerance with the Komatsu 200 excavator I'm taking the photo from below. Although I'm operating equipment less, I haven't forgotten. I want to comb your hair and shave off ML's mustache using an excavator for all your grooming needs. I think I still got the delicate touch.
